Here’s how to get your hands on free VKs this year
I will do ANYTHING
Think of how boring your uni life would be without VKs: No blue-tongued selfies, no yeeting, no glow in the dark VK-branded inflatables, balloons or neon paint all over your face. It would be a waste of nine-grand a year. Honestly, the only downside of a VK is that they aren’t free – surely VKs are as necessary as water, no?
Well, what if we told you there’s a way for you to get free VKs allll year long – interested? Duh, of course you are.
Here’s how to make your dreams come true and win your free VK supply for a WHOLE YEAR via VK’s #WEAREVK competition:
Step 1: Click here
Step 2: Choose the VK flavour you think best represents your personality
Step 3: Type in your name and email (the usual boring bits so they know who to send the free VKs to)
Step 4: Follow @VKdrink on Insta (so they know you’re a true fan)
That’s it, just four ridiculously simple steps to get your hands on a world of VK goodness this year. I know, sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong. Plus, if you still want to get your hands on some VK freebies you can hit up your local VK ambassador in person, follow @VKdrink on Instagram or maybe even apply to be an ambassador yourself next year?
And, as part of their #WEAREVK campaign, VK is bringing the ULTIMATE party vibes to your campus. Throughout September their #WEAREVIVID fresher’s tour will travel to 50 universities, satisfying all your VK needs – think huge VK bottles, inflatables, a VK throne (that’s the selfie sorted then), and tonnes of rainbow-hued VK merch. It’s set to be the most FOMO inducing event of Freshers’.
So, whether you want to put a face to the VK name so you know who to suck up to for free VKs or are just feeling particularly nosy, here’s some of the current VK ambassadors wandering around your campus:
